Abstract : Under sponsorship of the U.S. Air Force Rome Air Development Center (RADC), a Software Engineering Environment known as the Software Life Cycle Support Environment (SLCSE) was specified and is currently undergoing a 24 month advanced development. The SLCSE is a distributed, computer-based environment of software development tools and methods which span the full spectrum of the software life cycle and are integrated through a common and consistent user interface and a life cycle project database. Primary features of the SLCSE are: (1) it supports both the development and management of complex mission-critical computer resources (MCCR) software systems in accordance with the DoD-STD-2167 life cycle model for software development, (2) it is multi-lingual - supporting the Air Force standard higher-order languages including MIL-STD-1589B (JOVIAL J73) and MIL-STD-1815A (Ada), and (3) through its unifying framework, it enables the integration of both newly developed and existing (off-the-shelf) software tools.
